and president obama spent his weekend trying to avoid the sequester. no, of course not. instead of leading, the obama administration decided it's time, would best be spent highlighting how the sequester would impact each of the 50 states. what the white house failed to mention and the media won't cover, yet again, is that president obama and his left wing cohorts, they are the reason that this country is in this mess to begin with. and now, the white house is trying to vilify republicans, they're heartless, they're budget cutters, firing teachers and first responders and kids don't get immunizations and republicans are going to shut down schools and let criminals go. earlier today, the house leadership responded and tried to put some sanity in the numbers into perspective. >> the president's only idea to solve a problem is to take more of the hard working taxpayers. >> and that's let's put the sequester into perspective, it's 85 billion dollars. we have a spending problem in washington, we borrow more than a trillion. we roughly borrow 85 billion dollars every 28 days. so what we're lookin
exploded during the bush years, obama added on top of that. let's remember all the sequester does is shave off a little bit of the built-in growth of government spending. over the next ten years, the budget, even with the sequester, will go from $3.5 trillion to $5.9 trillion. we're still going to get $2.4 trillion more spending. we're just not going to get $2.5 trillion more spending. i view the sequester as a very tiny step in the right direction. >> jared, you look at some of these figure, if you include the emergency money more hurricane sandy, that just means we've had a 30% increase since 2008. now under the so-called sequester, we'll have a 5% increase. it's not like we're ripping the government to shreds. >> look, the way this works is you get negative fiscal impulse when you do less then th year than you did last year. let's go to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don
obama. once again obama is pushing for higher taxes. don't take our word for it. listen to what he said last night just before the sboel. >> there is a way to solve the budget problems in a responsible way through a balanced approach that the vast majority of people agree with. if we do there is no reason we can't have strong growth in 2013. we can't b have washington dysfunction getting in the way. >> with all respect, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperi prosperity. more tax hikes will not hurt this economy. let's not push our luck. republicans will block it. we'll be right back. ♪ if loving you is wrong ♪ i don't wanna be right [ record scratch ] what?! it's not bad for you. it just tastes that way.

. obama said this year's changes shouldn't be the last. >> there is no doubt we need additional revenue coupled with smart spending reductions in order to bring down the deficit. he is not talking raising rates but closing loopholes especially those making money from investment pay a lower tax rate than income salaried or hourly wage earn ers. >> the average person doesn't have access to cayman island reports. they don't have access to interest income where they pay a much lower rate on billions of dollars they have earned. >> mr. obama says the only way to continue investing in education research and development and still reverse the deficit is with a combination of spending cuts and additional revenues. republicans said the government got additional revenue with last year's tax agreement which raised tax rates on families making more than 450,000 a year and limited or phased out deductions for income over 300,000. in a statement john boehner said any tax loopholes we close should be used to lower rates for all taxpayers so we can be more xret ticompetitive and cree jobs. he reminded t
." one of the great political debates in washington and around the country has been whether barack obama is a highly partisan democrat bent on liberal agenda or a centrist searching for compromise. it's still early in his second term, but he's recently made moves that seem to answer the question. obama could easily choose a partisan strategy that would be politically effective. don't make deals with the republicans on immigration or entitlement reform and go into the 2014 congressional elections with those problems still alive. with no deal, democrats could campaign as the guardians of medicare and advocates of immigration reform, both electoral winners. that's why some democratic senators have begun to make demands well beyond what republicans can accept. but obama has chosen the second path. two weeks ago, as soon as a group of republican and democratic senators joined forces behind a unified approach to immigration reform, obama signaled his support for it. and this week in urging congress not to allow the so-called sequestration process to force spending cuts, the white house said th

morris rogers. welcome back. let me go to you right now. first up, can you do business with president obama? he is opposed to this and wants to rewrite it and defer it change it? can you do business? >> i think it simimportant to remember that these devastating cuts were his ideas. it was the republicans that have put forward two times now proposals to replace these cuts with other ways to reduce spending. we passed these six months ago. we need the democrats to put their proposals forward. why is it that spending cuts are bad for the economy but tax increases are somehow not bad for the economy? i don't understand that logic. we need both. we have been having this debate back and forth. that is part of the problem. and we need some spending restraint. the big area where we need it is in health care. the rising health care cost is in growth to the economy. if we can find ways to bring down the costs of health care we can have a win win. >> the report that came out, which shows a slight decline in the deficit goes back up over $1 trillion in ten years because of social security and yet the presi

>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that women get birth control? how do we insure that religious institutions aren't forced to pay for it? access to stand-alone-coverage. changes where they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in conflict, are not anymore. one goal is to reduce dramatically the number of unwanted pregnancies. regular use of birth control is one way that works. in this case, the catholic church is protected from having to pay for birth control insurance. my own idea is the solution the obama reached is win-win. getting birth control to women for free will help to make it free. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction makes it no less beneficial to the goal of averting unwanted pregnancies. and with them in many cases, the decision to have an abortion. this is what good, smart, progressive morally uprigh
